Taylor designed the GS Mini to provide musicians all over the world with a fun-sized acoustic guitar with a rich, powerful voice. The GS Mini-e Walnut is a new, left handed edition, using striking Walnut tonewood in the back and sides and Taylor's innovative ES-B onboard electronics. The GS Mini-e Walnut appeals to left handed beginners and experts alike thanks to its incredible playability.
GS Mini Body
The main element of the GS Mini is its scaled-down Grand Symphony body, however that does not mean that the sound has to be scaled down too! This smaller Grand Symphony guitar is considered to be a modern take on a parlour guitar, proving to be just as fun to play at home as it is to take out on the road.
Taylor have opted for a solid Sitka Spruce top, a popular choice for an acoustic soundboard thanks to its outstanding projection and expansive range of tones. The top is reinforced thanks to X-bracing with Relief Route underneath. The back and sides are made up of Walnut, offering a deep, rich low end and crisp highs with plenty of warmth and clarity. The smaller Grand Symphony profile combined with the tonewoods gives you a well-balanced output that can adapt to any playing style.
A 23 1/2 inch scale length sapele neck is fitted to the body. The neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard which hosts 20 frets and 4mm dot Italian acrylic inlays provide you with a handy guide for each fret transition.
Taylor are a pioneering brand when it comes to creating innovative electronics to amplify their models. The ES-B pickup known for its unique behind-the-saddle design is employed to amplify the GS Mini-e Walnut. The ES-B has three individually calibrated pickup sensors which are more able in translating the guitar's natural voice. The ES-B pickup works with Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp to give you a responsive, accurate sound. Tweaking your output is easy thanks to the Volume and Tone controls, guaranteeing that the GS Mini-E Walnut sounds excellent through any amp or PA system.
Tuning with precision is a certainty with the Taylor chrome tuners at the headstock, even after a long set. The GS Mini-e Walnut features a Tusq nut and Micarta saddle that improve sustain and intonation. The natural finish of the GS Mini-e Walnut is complemented with a tortoise-pattern pickguard and a three ring soundhole rosette. Taylor include a hard but lightweight gig bag with every purchase, so you can take your new, fun-size guitar wherever you want to with ease.
